Alan Pardew has not managed to shift Albion’s fortunes around since taking over Tony Pulis on the bench. The mentioned draw against Everton has made it 19 straight games without a win for the Baggies who can be happy to still be on a three-point gap to the safe zone at this stage. Can the New Year and the trip to the capital for the clash with fellow strugglers West Ham United mark the beginning of a winning run?

Grabbing the spoils from London Stadium should not be a mission impossible for Pardew and his men since West Ham United seem to be struggling to keep things tight at the back once again. The Hammers have allowed three goals in each of last two Premier League outings against bottom-half likes of Newcastle United and AFC Bournemouth. A single point from these two ties is certainly a poor return for David Moyes’ men who have finished the year in the drop zone as well thanks to such a dismal streak.

The good news for the Scottish manager is the form of Marko Arnautovic who has finally started to produce up front. This summer’s acquisition scored four goals in last four matches, including a brace in the mentioned 3-3 draw against Bournemouth at Vitality on Boxing Day.

West Ham United vs West Bromwich Albion: Predictions

Neither of the two sides can be happy with their form coming into their Tuesday’s clash at London Stadium.

Since the match has a huge importance for both managers, we don’t expect to witness a beauty and backing the low-scoring contest might just be the way to go under these circumstances.
